Abstract

Twenty-seven strains representing 10 Mucor species were assayed for their ability to utilize various substrates as carbon sources. They were also examined for their exoenzyme activities by means of the API-ZYM microtest system. Cluster analysis of resulting data revealed a loose correlation between these physiological patterns and the species designation of the isolates. Though different strains of the same species often vary in their substrate utilization abilities, the value of this approach to provide complementary data for the characterization of Mucor isolates has been demonstrated.
